                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Hello, my countrymen.

     Ah... I'm getting to this report rather late, so I'll be brief.  No one avoided,
no one died, and there were two challenges -- one of which was a TV challenge.
     EVIL ELMO (99-1222) (74-37-4,219) of TWISTED SESAME TV challenged CHIEF
STORMCLOUD (51-4306) (39-17-1,255) of RAINDANCE.  EVIL ELMO unbelievably bested CHIEF
STORMCLOUD in a 4 minute Challenge fight.  Well fought, Evil.  It looked like a close
one to me.  Was it?  Evil Elmo, by the way, is our top Wall of Steel warrior.
     This was a good fight.  TWIG (82-25226) (63-40-0,202) of POWER PLAY challenged
PUTRID KOALA (62-96) (40-31-2,202) of DEATH MOB.  TWIG was savagely defeated by
PUTRID KOALA in an exciting 5 minute Challenge melee.  Well fought!
     NEOSPHINCTER (18-7317) (105-38-1,472) of WASTELAND fought MASOCHISTIC NEWT (62-
1081) (35-35-3,213) of DEATH MOB.  NEOSPHINCTER vanquished MASOCHISTIC NEWT in a 2
minute mismatched Title brawl.  After all these months, Neo is still our top Aimed
Blow.  You'd think he'd get tired of it.  I expect you all get tired of practicing
the same fighting style year after year after year.  Practicing, that's the thing.
The actual fighting for one's life, that's not so tedious.  Although for Neo, the
arena fights might seem pretty much like practice at this point.  I can understand
not wanting to challenge when the nearest-ranked warrior is more than 100 points
below you.  If you MUST hurt someone badly and make them look like a fool at the same
time, it seems kinder to leave the choice of the victim to chance.
     With his record, Mr. Cheap is likely to be with us for some time, as he seems in
little danger of being drafted to Primus.  CRACK IS CHEAP (82-18422) (58-77-0,210) of
NEGATIVE CASH FLOW fought SOLACIA (104-24) (68-32-0,225) of UNLUCKY VICTIMS.  CRACK
IS CHEAP was savagely defeated by SOLACIA in an exciting 4 minute bloody fray.  Alas
-- beaten by a stand-in.  But at least she's kind of sexy, if you like demonesses.
     Was it scum sympathy, or were the spectators simply rewarding a good fight when
they voted Hatch Battener to be This Week's Favorite?  RED FUSION (6-5480) (76-56-
0,196) of IT'S NEW! fought HATCH BATTENER (1-8014) (28-18-1,194) of SEA DOGS.  RED
FUSION unbelievably bested HATCH BATTENER in an exciting 7 minute gory bout.  It
didn't look to me like he got scummed.
     PATCH (36-7297) (15-7-0,52) of SEA DOGS fought DEATH MAGE (62-2115) (15-7-1,54)
of DEATH MOB.  PATCH was handily defeated by DEATH MAGE in a 1 minute one-sided duel.
Patch was voted this turn's Least Favorite, and some of you are probably wondering
why.  He didn't look that bad out there on the sands.  And I suspect that was the
problem.  No patch on either eye.  The spectators were disappointed.  I asked Patch
about it later and he showed me a nicotine patch on his arm.  Ah.  Lady Greywand's
magics can heal things like a missing eye, but addictions are something else again.
If anything, it is rumored that her enchantments make one more susceptible to that
sort of thing.
     I believe that's all I have to say.  I'll let you go on your way, and I'm going
to bed.  Good night!

have been of service. -- Shewish Corsair

golem, so it's moot. -- Beach Betty

                            Starting Nov 2008 (10 turns)

Anyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances created solely to compete in the Turf War!  To participate, each alliance must:
        1.  Announce the alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork
            (DM 47) newsletter.
        2.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
        1.  Verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their
            alliance;
        2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
        3.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
        1.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate
        2.  Announce their intent to compete with manager name, team name, and
            alliance they will represent in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
            Announcement made on the D2 Forums will not be accepted.
               a.  No scores will be tabulated until a Gift Certificate is received.
                   No EXCEPTIONS.
               b.  Before a manager can compete, he/she must declare themselves in
                   the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter as stated above AND be verified
                   by the alliance Captain they will represent.
               c.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No multiple teams or
                   aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate
                   disqualification from the Turf War (so be sure to take any
                   multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance).
               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams that do not properly
                   declare or fail to send a Gift Certificate by Turn 1.  In other
                   words, if your Gift Certificate is not received until Turn 3 of
                   the Turf War, and you have fought on Turns 1 and 2, your scoring
                   will not begin until Turn 3.  All conditions must be met before
                   scoring will begin--declaration, verification, and Gift
                   Certificate received.
               e.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 5 of
                   the Turf War.
               f.  For purposes of scoring, the moderators will score the Turf War
                   and settle any and all disputes as they arise.  Their decisions
                   will be final.

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud        +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2
Duelmaster                                       +2

Champions:
     1.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory.
     2.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
     3.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior in the arena, but
         not the Dark Arena, may be replaced.
     4.  Champions must be in the Adepts bracket or lower on the turn they are
         declared, and may NOT have gone above Adepts level at any time; this
         includes teams transferred into North Fork for the Turf War.

Bloodfeuds:
        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is ALLOWED and encouraged.
        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 50 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) win such status.
        4.  Points for TVs and TCs will be applied the Turn after RSI posts
            tournament results in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter (i.e., if the
            results post on North Fork turn 275, points will be credited on North
            Fork turn 276 to the applicable teams).

Special Considerations:
        1.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
        2.  There will be NO alliance or team changes once the contest has begun.  If
            you begin the Turf War with Alliance A, you must end the Turf War with
            Alliance A.  If you begin the Turf War with Team A, you must end the Turf
            War with Team A.
        3.  There will be a maximum of seven (7) teams allowed per alliance for the
            Turf War.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
            without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is a "winner take all" contest.  All prizes and 100% of the Gift
Certificates will be awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance.  It is the
responsibility of the Captain to distribute Gift Certificates.  Moderators will
submit a list of each manager on the winning alliance to RSI at the completion of the
contest for the non-Certificate prizes.

The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters (one for each manager in the winning
            alliance);
        3.  Known Favorites for one warrior on each team of the winning alliance
            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have
            at least one arena fight to receive this award).
        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47)
        5.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each manager who fights in all 10 rounds
            AND 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied to a living

These awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee) within 4
turns of the end of TW VI.
